        OBITUARY.-Our Formby correspondent writes on 20th inst.:-Mr. George Lay- cock, a well-known resident of Formby, expired at his residence today, from congestion of the lungs. He leaves a large family of sons and daughters, well trained by his excellent example to colonial work. Emigrating from Yorkshire many years since, Mr. Laycock brought its tenacious sturdy character to this country, thereby introducing the precious indefatigable qualities of the British yeoman. An inveterate asthma, contracted in this climate, added to a neglected cold, caused his death at the comparatively early age of 52. Such men as he hew out the fortunes of Great Britain and Tasmania.

        FORMBY. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) You have already notified the death of an old identity, Mr. G. A. Laycock, road contractor, who arrived here 32 years ago, engaged to the Mersey Coal Company. After fulfilling his engagement he settled here, entering into road contracting in this and surrounding districts. Many of the best pieces of road hereabouts were made by him, and remain as monuments of the faithful way in which he did his work. He leaves a widow, eight sons, and six daughters. The funeral, which was largely attended yesterday to the Don Cemetery, was conducted by Mr. M. Woods in his usual efficient manner.
